Response management apps

One of the most transformative functions of mobile devices in the classroom is that they allow teachers to harvest and respond to input from all the learners at once.  The following apps are all “response management” apps.  Teachers can get feedback from all students, in real time, on a given question or topic.   There are endless possibilities for formative, dynamic, and summative assessment using such apps.  These polls, and the visual charts generated by them, can also serve as a springboard to classroom discussion, build schema for a topic, and check comprehension.
